DO NOT book this house. I really can’t even describe how bad it was. There were hundreds of spiders (all sizes and colors) all over the decks, entry way to the house and to the beach and the carport. The railings on the decks looked like they were decorated for Halloween. I’ve never seen anything like it. We informed the realty company and they sent out someone after 2 days and a handful of calls from more than one adult staying at the house. The person who came was coming to clear off the decks, as they said they already had an exterminator out the day of our arrival. He was wonderful and did a very thorough job, he too was surprised at just how bad it was and said while spraying the decks it was raining spiders... the only positive in this whole situation was he only spiders that were actually in the house we very small, though they were plentiful over the kitchen island and in some bathrooms. We only used the decks for about and hour after they were sprayed off because after it began getting dark the spiders that had not been washed away, came out to build their webs. Going to the beach to see and hear the ocean in an oceanfront house can be so peaceful and recharging. This experience was anything but that. They house was generally not well maintained or clean and it’s so disappointing, No amount of money back (not that it was offered, but I am planning to ask for something) will give us our vacation back. I’m not sure if the owner doesn’t know or doesn’t care but if that was my investment I’d be very upset with the condition it is in.

We've stayed at quite a few places on the OBX, but this house is my one and only complaint. I've never written a review before, so please consider this a warning. I read a review on here regarding ants and spiders and should have taken it more seriously. I actually thought, how bad can it be? Well, the bugs were pretty bad. The kitchen was infested with tiny ants, while the spiders ruled the deck. The screens and window sills were covered with dead bugs. If I were the owner I'd be embarrassed to have guests. There were a couple of nights I had to kick the blankets off because something was crawling on me. I would actually stay here again though if I was promised a no insect guarantee. The house itself and location are quite nice.

My family and I spent a week here and we had such a wonderful time! The weather was gorgeous and the view of the ocean from the top deck was amazing! This is not the newest beach house around but it is still comfortable and inviting. Being beach front is a huge perk! We enjoyed the giant tv in the common room and hanging hammocks on the side deck. I would definitely recommend this place to family and friends.

the house was great; very clean; great locations; it had the most well stocked kitchen we could have asked for; working with Outer Banks Blue was so pleasant. they answers all of our questions in record time and couldn't have been more acoommodating. We will rent from then again.

The place is in such a fantastic location. Unfortunately you can't enjoy the deck - our friends and children wouldn't even go on the deck - either level because of the layers of spiders. It was impossible to get rid of them. We spend every morning wiping it down but by afternoon it was miserable. Really, webs and egg sacs everywhere. It needs an exterminator

Great house -:- VA
The weather was cloudy, rainy and chilly but the views and the empty beach more than made up for that. Service was excellant. House could have been more thoroughly cleaned.

Despite very responsive service from Outer Banks Blue, there was a consistent ant problem that didn't go away during the TWO weeks we stayed there. OOB had an exterminator service come out twice but the nasty buggers didn't take the hint. Lots of food had to be thrown away, and anything that was open had to be kept in ziplock bags. That said, the house is tastefully decorated, well-equipped and has wonderful ocean views. Would stay here again if the ant problem were resolved.

Sea Fox is cozy, warm, and inviting. It was nice having a bedroom upstairs, and the updated kitchen and baths were great. Also, the kitchen is very well equipped. We loved the home and plan to return.

Lori -:- New England
Last year we stayed in the dunes and while it was absolutely beautiful, we wanted a location that was less remote. Duck/Sanderling was the perfect destination for us. We enjoyed Sea Fox and the extra amenities we hadn't planned on....wide range of games, videos, books, beach toys, infant toys, and a stroller were available. We were happy to take advantage of the stroller for the short walk to the pool. Sea Fox had beautiful oceanfront views. One morning we watched hundreds of dolphins jumping in and out of the ocean. The Duck/Sanderling area has enjoyable bike/running paths. Quaint shopping. Also very safe. Only negative to the house was that we had an issue with ants in the kitchen. The house was very clean, but we couldn't leave anything on the counters without ants crawling over it. It wouldn't prevent us from renting again though, as I'm sure it will be addressed.. Loved the keyless entry. The house has a wonderful layout. Didn't like the late 4pm arrival.

We enjoyed our time in this house. It was clean, it was bright and in November is was secluded. Outer Banks Blue made renting easy and I will consider staying here again!
